For the 166th-consecutive week, the Pac-12 has had at least five teams ranked in the AVCA Coaches poll. League teams occupy four of the top-five positions in the polling this week, and five of the top seven spots. In just the first week of Pac-12 action, volleyball fans were treated to a pair of big upsets, and the potential for more is there every week with five ranked squads ... OREGON has improved 18 spots since the AVCA preseason poll was announced, achieving its highest-ever national ranking at No. 2 this week. USC follows at No. 3, UCLA is No. 4 and WASHINGTON is No. 5 to round out the top-five in the country. STANFORD is ranked No. 7 ... Highlighting this week's schedule is a couple of top-five clashes. The Huskies host the Bruins on Wednesday, then host the Trojans on Friday. Both matches will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks, in addition to six other televised matches ... Pac-12 teams are 48-8 (85.7 winning percent) on their home courts. With three of the five ranked teams heading on the road, it could be another interesting week in the Pac-12 ... OREGON's Lauren Plum was voted the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week, while STANFORD's Jordan Burgess was selected the Pac-12 Defensive Player and Freshman of the Week.
